Classic Creepy Comics - Horrific & Weird Terror

Horrific and Weird Terror were bi-monthly series published by Comics Media from September 1952 to September 1954. 

I couldn't dig up much info on either series but there's no denying the covers are enough to catch your eye and pop it out of the socket!

Most of the covers for both series were done by Don Heck who was the main artist across many of Comics Media's titles at the time. Heck would be recruited by Stan Lee in 1955 to join Atlas Comics.

Heck worked alongside other Marvel legends like Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby. He's credited as co-creator for Iron Man, Black Widow, and Hawkeye.

You can read these books online for free (legally!). If you create an account, you can also download them to your own digital long box.
